Halfmoon - Joy-a-Toes: Bring Your Feet To Life!

It is a known fact that wearing tight or improperly fitted shoes can cause bunions, heel pain, back pain, neck pain, and the list goes on.

Let’s face it- shoes are messing up the perfectly balanced, coordinated bipedal gait that our species evolved over millions of years.

Well, what if we told you that you could wear your favourite shoes and have healthy, happy feet! The solution? Joy-a-Toes.

Joy-a-Toes

They are toe spreaders made of a comfortable gel material that can be worn around the house, out and about in certain footwear, and during your yoga practice.

Features and Benefits of Joy-a-toes:
• rejuvenate tired, achy and swollen feet
• realign the bones and soft tissue
• stimulate circulation
• increase flexibility and strength
• open the energy channels and revitalize the body

Joy-a-Toes are the most versatile patented toe spreader on the market. Designed by Gioia Irwin, a well-known yogi who spent many years perfecting both the design and the materials to bring us this amazing product.

As with anything new, there is a period of adjustment when you initially start to wear your
Joy-a-Toes. Gioia suggests wearing them 5 to 20 minutes three times a day to allow your feet to realign and open. As your feet adjust, you will be able to wear them for longer periods of time.

Joy-a-toes can be the foundation for that change you are looking for – free your feet, one toe at a time.

This can be as microscopic as an adhesion in our skeletal muscle tissue that is causing pain, referral pain or a headache, and as obvious as a muscle stuck in contracture that causes what we refer to as a knot that seems to roll under your touch. We put our bodies through a lot, and physical stress like working out or even the physical stress from our jobs (whether it’s sitting all day or moving), as well as mental and emotional stress, can store itself in our bodies as tension.

As our beaches and parks get shut down, the preciousness of nature seems even more important. If anything will keep us sane and healthy right now it is the forests, the trees and the wide-open seas. My hope is that we always take the time to observe the beauty of nature. Even if we are locked inside, we can still look up at the clouds and the stars; and see the immense beauty that we are a part of. We can feel the gift of the green leafy trees in every breath we take.
